(DECATUR, Ind.) — A Texas company says one of its pipelines has spilled more than 8,000 gallons of jet fuel into a river in the northeastern Indiana city of Decatur.

Houston-based Buckeye Pipe Line says it immediately shut down the line Friday evening when it detected a pressure problem.

The fuel spilled into the St. Marys River in Decatur, a community of about 9,500 people roughly 100 miles northeast of Indianapolis.

Local officials say booms were placed in the river to contain the fuel, which was being vacuumed off the water’s surface.

Decatur Mayor Kenneth L. Meyer says the cleanup could take weeks.
